be yourself, give your free will a chance



i meant to get to this earlier, to say happy valentine's day when the day was still new, but life got in the way today and even now i am writing this while lying in bed moments away from slumber.

i had high hopes this afternoon to take a great cheesy photograph of cohen that would involve paper hearts and red fabric, possibly even teddy bears. he tried to eat the paper hearts only to have me panic and quickly scoop my finger into his mouth and retrieve the shards of pink paper and he covered his head with the fabric and laughed hysterically, the lighting way to0 low to capture such a jittery shot. as for the teddy bear? he kept gnawing at it's ear and the photograph was less than spectacular. so we ended up with this, he's wearing red so that is sort of festive right?

it was a good day. there was a roast and expensive wine, flowers, a chocolate pecan torte with a vanilla latte and an hour long bath. if i had slept more than four hours last night it would have been the perfect day, which brings us to now and me in bed before ten.

i hope you all had a great day. oh, and tell me what do you think of the new layout? i was going through a bit of a crisis this week, the kind where you want to cut off all your hair or move the furniture. in the end i decided to change the layout of the blog as a compromise, hopefully it is enough to keep the scissors at bay. is it just me or does this time of year bring out this feeling in everyone? i think it has something to do with spring...

I like the layout. Nice, simple, and uncluttered. Cohen eating paper...hahaha. Oh to be unaware again.

Peace.

can't wait to plant some belated valetine's kisses on cohen! I too love the new design - "fresh" came to mind for me too.
